Finding the perfect venue for your wedding can be one of the most difficult steps of planning. From overall price to vendor fees + guest limitations there are so many factors that need to be considered. After coordinating a few SoCal weddings we want to introduce you to 3 venues that could be perfect for your big day!
1. Ever After Petite Venue- Moorpark, CA
Upon arriving to the Ever After Petite Venue you may notice a beautiful bridal store neighboring the wedding venue. Taylor, owner of Ever After Petite Venue, first owned Ever After Bridal, a boutique wedding dress storefront with dresses lining every wall. Cute right?!
Taylor had extra room on her lot and decided to turn the neighboring building + land into a petite wedding venue + we are obsessed! This is the perfect venue for couples that are planning micro weddings of about 100 or less + elopements.
After walking through the wooden gate you will find a bridal suite to the right which includes a bathroom, changing room + main room. This is the perfect space for getting ready before your big day or for setting up food + drinks for cocktail hour.
Besides the bridal suite the venue is a complete blank canvas. We created a boho wedding ceremony with pampas grass accents, vintage rugs lining the aisle + a mix of dried and fresh florals on the wooden geometric arch. Transitioning to the reception is a breeze with storage space behind the bridal suite building to place ceremony chairs + setup.
Long story short, if you are planning a small + intimate wedding, the Ever After Petite Venue might be perfect for you!
2. Zaca Mesa Winery- Los Olivos, CA
Are you a hopeless romantic who loves wine + beautiful scenery? Introducing Zaca Mesa Winery, a breathtakingly beautiful venue right in the middle of Los Olivos wine country.
This venue has been recently renovated, creating two more venue spaces that you can choose from: The View Room + the Club Lounge. Walking into the View Room you are met with raised ceilings, rustic light fixtures, white textured walls + natural light from every angle. This is truly the reception space of our dreams! The Club Lounge is the perfect spot for cocktail hour, with cozy couches + access to the front "porch" where you can overlook the beautiful mountain ranges nearby.
What about ceremony spaces? Well, the View Room could double as both! There are also two ceremony spaces outside within the vineyard. You can choose between the Oak Tree or the Windmill. The most difficult part about visiting this venue is deciding which space you want to utilize.

3. Bloomgren Ranch- Santa Clarita, CA
If you're looking for a secluded wedding venue where you + your guests can party then Bloomgren Ranch is the perfect venue for you! Located in Santa Clarita, this venue has 4 different wedding spaces to choose from. While each space is not huge, they can easily fit 150-200 guests.
We coordinated a wedding on the second lot, which included a bridal suite for getting ready + storage. The ceremony space was surrounded by beautiful trees + string lights. After the ceremony the workers at the ranch transitioned quickly to the ceremony and set up the dance floor + dinner tables. One of our favorite parts about this venue is how helpful + efficient the staff is.
Even though it can be tough to find the perfect venue, this is one of the best parts of wedding planning! Once you secure your venue, so much stress will be lifted off of your shoulders. These three venues can be perfect for any guest count, season, budget + style. Happy venue hunting!
